On Friday 11th May The Gallery Cafe will host the inaugural Polar Position - an informal evening of live music in support of Bipolar UK.
The night will be hosted by Essex-based folk & soul singer/songwriter Tom Ryder, who combines dynamic guitar playing, catchy melodies, witty lyrics and soaring vocals. His debut single 'Silence Breaking Through Sound' raised over £9,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support last year, and was performed to Chris Evans and Rod Stewart.
